Awesome! That's not too bad and I bet it wouldn't be as bad had you not hit the spine. I'm definitely intrigued to load some up for anything from varmints to deer.I've been draggin my feet in contacting back the Taxidermist. Last called him in May and he explained that Covid had slowed things down in terms of him getting his supplies from Taxidermy Supply Wharehouse stores. I'm sure he could stitch that hole up though. It was a bit of a hole, but not like pieces of the hide were missing or anything. And the edge of the hole wasn't too ragged looking.
And oh my goodness the fur is sooo soft on those things!! I was really surprised by that. By how soft it was! If I'd have known that I'd have put in much more effort towards getting more of them before my State went Full-Retard and banned taking them.
Here's a pic of the wound from that 62gr on the cat...
